The CFL lost one of its legends when Hall of Famer Ron Lancaster died on Wednesday night.
The former star quarterback and coach was diagnosed with lung cancer in early August and had been undergoing radiation and chemotherapy to treat the disease.
He had been working as a colour analyst on Hamilton Tiger-Cats radio broadcasts this season before receiving the diagnosis.

I'm so glad to have shook Ron's hand at the CFL awards several years ago. Total CFL player, coach and person. No ego there. He will be missed.

6 weeks from diagnosis to death? He had time to say his farewells. I wonder...was he a smoker?
